The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) parliamentary candidate for Offinso South in the 2016 election, Kwadwo Amoateng, is in critical condition after being shot by unknown assailants.

The PPP Communications Director, Paa Kow Ackon, said on Saturday, December 2, 2017 Mr Amoateng was shot in the arm and chest around 9 pm “but currently in stable condition.”

He said the incident happened when the victim was entering his house.

“On Thursday night he was returning from his money transfer business office and when he got shot just few metres away from his main gate. He had alighted from his car to open the gate to his house when a group of five young men believed to be in their early 20s appeared and demanded for his bag and shot him at his right chest seven times.”

He said the neighbours initially thought it was kids playing with fire-crackers because of the approaching Christmas festivities but he was later found bleeding and was rushed to the Offinso St. Patrick Hospital.

He said that seven pellets were removed from Mr Amoateng’s body and the doctors recommended a transfer to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital as they believed there were “over 20 pellets in his body that needed to be removed.”
